Information & News from the KZYX General Manager

I will be posting news and information here about any changes occurring at the station. As you are probably aware, staff member Mary Aigner is retiring after 22 years with KZYX. She will still be producing the show DEAD AIR on Thursday nights. She has provided incredible service to the station for many years, in many different positions, including her current job as Program Director, and her previous jobs as Interim Station Manager, Membership Coordinator and Underwriting Sales Director.

Angela DeWitt has been named our new Interim Program Manager. The staff is working together to create a new job description for the Program Director, and when that is done (and budget permits) we will post the job widely and have an open hiring process.

Stay tuned more news and information soon!

Former Mendocino County Supervisor and long-time aide to Congressman Mike Thompson, Kendall Smith, will be our guest on "All About Money" on Friday, January 23, at 9 AM.

We'll discuss Kendall's career in public service. We'll also discuss the most pressing issues that face Mendocino County from Kendall's perspective.

Finally, we'll discuss a an exciting new project of which Kendall is an important participant.

At its Annual Conference held in Pittsburgh, PA in July 2012, the National Association of Counties (NACo)  approved an important policy resolution for the Reduction and Cleanup.  It can be found on the NACo website.

As a member of the Environment, Energy and Land Use Committee, Kendall Smith  was honored to introduce the item to the full Committee. This was a collaborative proposal involving the states of Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, and California.  These Western states were pleased that after introduction and discussion, the Committee vote to support this timely resolution was unanimous. The resolution was then approved as official NACo policy by the full voting membership at the Annual Business Meeting.

The resolution gives national policy support to local jurisdictions, states, and federal agencies to advocate for enhanced resources for marine debris cleanup, including tsunami debris, and support for passage of local bans on single-use plastic bags. 

Again, the resolution may be found on the NACo website. Additionally, recent press coverage on the growing tsunami debris problem is included. Interested persons will find this information useful especially as it relates to pending or future legislation and as an advocacy tool to assist in funding strategies for marine protection efforts. 

Interested persons may also contact NACo directly for additional information. You may contact also contact Kendall Smith directly.

Kendall Smith wishes to thank NACo for its historical and future support for marine habitat protection efforts, including the acknowledgment to the significant challenges marine debris presents to local government.
